I've hit my first glitch in this process. Years ago I did something similar by
having a script call povray.exe for each frame to render. povray.exe would not
exit until the render of the frame was complete. After povray.exe returned the
script could pick the next frame to render and continue. The current
pvengine32/64.exe program runs asynchronously and returns immediately so the
script can't tell when the render is finished. Also, once pvengine is open you
can't call it again with another .ini file to start another frame.

Any ideas?
